Guild Wars 2

Guildwars 2 logo

Because the Guild Wars 2 expansion “Heart of Thorns” is launching soon, ArenaNet decided to make Guild Wars 2 free.
Guild Wars is currently one of the largest paid MMORPG’s. The game has received very good reviews and has an active community.

There are 5 different races:

  • Asura
  • Sylvari
  • Human
  • Norn
  • Charr

Guild Wars 2 has 8 professions (classes):

  • Engineer
  • Necromancer
  • Thief
  • Elementalist
  • Warrior
  • Ranger
  • Mesmer
  • Guardian

Compared to the normal version of the game, the free version has a few limitations. The goal of these limitations are to keep the game fair and ofcourse to encourage players to buy Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns (for about 45 euros).

The table below explains the difference between the versions of the game:
